 This series (now a part of the Ultimate Blog Challenge) is also Let Your Words Flow Writing Prompts & Moreserving as a bridge to my new blog which will be unveiled in the middle of the month. In past blog challenges I have offered prompts under the "Let Your Words Flow" name. The Inspiration from Literary Grannies serve as a subset of that series.

 I welcome your comments, your questions and your quote contributions. Please share the prompts with your writing buddies and friends!

 In fact, as you read books written by women in 2015, take note of inspiring quotes. I would love to add them to my collection and may even write a prompt from them.
